Slate tiles – A popular material for roof tiles, however they are more time consuming than concrete or clay tiles when installing. Each tile is individually fixed in place with either nails or slate clips.
Stone tiles – Extremely heavy slabs which can be up to 4ft wide, thus a strong framework is needed to support them. Stone slabs are not readily available, and this is reflected in the cost.
Reconstituted stone – Reconstructed stone is usually a mix of cement, limestone and pieces of original stone. Whilst in production care is taken to match the colour and style of original stone slabs.
